Yesterday was a day full of surprises.  At the planning meeting, it turned out that we have 2 more people in the group than we planned on and leading the group around Chicago is still only sketchy.  Ugh. With budgets so tight right now, adding more people this late in the game makes things… well… interesting.

But the pleasant surprise was that our student intern flew through all the projects given to him and even finished early!  So now I’m hoping I have enough planned for him to do today.  Having another person here is going to be very helpful, especially during the Chinese visit.
